Damn, I wish I could get a pet snake.
Unfortunately, there's two things standing in the way.
1. Not allowed pets in the house I live in.
2. To get a snake, I'd have to first get a reptile licence from the government (costs $55.60 but lasts five years) and then buy the snake (around $300), but not before paying my reptile movement fee of $3 to the government. And buying all the other necessary gear to actually keep the snake.
So yeah, quite a bit of money in total.
Hence the dollar sign.
That snake is so gorgeous.
What's his name?
I also wish to know the snakes name, age, and if the owner has any other pets like it?
A few months back we found out there was an armadillo living in my neighborhood. We'd see it scurry across the roads and shit. One day we went out and got it, took it outback and fed it some shit, we didn't know what armadillos ate, so after some googling we got some leftover fishing worms for it. It came back every now and then and me and my friend that got it named it "ArmadillBRO" because we're all unclever bastards.
Sad thing is though, we got a bit of snow back during the "snowpocalypse", and believe me here, Georgia NEVER gets snow, at least not where I live. Haven't seen the guy since, so either the snow killed it or he became some redneck's speed-bump.
Miss you armadillbro.
Also, that is a really neat OP, kudos for the effort.
Cichlid have to be some of the easiest fish to breed, if you keep them well fed. I have like 40 in a 200 gallon tank
I was amazed how quickly it adapted to him and his family, at first to get it out it's cage they had to actually reach in and grab him, now you can open the cage and he'll slither towards the exit to be picked up and then proceed to wrap himself around you.
I normally believe fish make boring pets. They aren't very bright, hard to interact with and seem more like decorations than companions.
Then I found out about lumpsuckers.
Well, my fear of crickets has grown so bad to the point where I'm using some sort of air-pump two-foot long claw. :colbert:
Those common feeder crickets don't have much of a bite, or much strength period. Scratching an itch with your fingernails does more harm than a feeder cricket bite.
Our bees just swarmed and went up a tree.
(Bees are kind of exotic)
I don't keep them myself, just sort of watch. Me parents do all the work.
They do consider them pets and not just a resource.
The honey is nice, though
Do people count as pets
I had to help get them out of the tree... Absolutely terrifying.
The procedure was simple but delicate. I held a box underneath while my mum whacked the branch very hard with a stick so they fell out.
i got a kitten
her name is Polyp
here's my bearded dragon
that's pretty exotic
Might as well post this here now that it was bumped.
A nice old one of my clownfish:
Maybe someday I'll make a thread on fishkeeping If I feel like it.
The OP gave me a good read so I'll share some advice.
Never buy snails for a fish tank, my friend was like "Oh they'll clean the tank for me". Two weeks later there were like 50 of them in there.
I think he sold them though, so lodsamonie.
